Burlap Gift Bags

Posted on November 20, 2014
Hi Everybody! I have another super simple and easy giftwrap idea to share with you today! I made these burlap treat bags last fall, and this is a Christmas version! The burlap bags themselves are so easy to make and don’t require any sewing at all (I love hot glue! It makes life so much easier, and there isn’t much you can’t use it on!) and you can embellish them with whatever festive decorations you can find. Here’s how you can make these…
Scissors & Ruler
Hot Glue Gun
Jingle Bells
Faux greenery
First, cut your burlap into rectangles. You can make them as big as you like, I usually cut them to about 5×9 inches big. Place two pieces of burlap on top of each other and using hot glue, attach them to each other by glueing the two long sides and one of the short sides. Then, turn the bag inside out. Fill it with candy or whatever little gifts you are using it for, then tie some ribbon around the top, looping a jingle bell through the ribbon before tying it. Add in some small pieces of greenery (you can attach it to the ribbon with more hot glue) and you are done!
